MW BAND SCAN Madeira March 10-17th, 2009

I visited the island of Madeira March 10-17th, 2009. I was lucky as the weather was very good, the island very green and the apartment excellent with a large balcony and it was free from electrical disturbances. My listening place located in the area of LIDO pools , 2 km from city center of Funchal. I was surprised over the many mainland Spanish and French stations that was heard on my Sony T-1000 with the specially built transportable mediumwave loop. More interesting stations were: The stations acc. to WRTH were heard except 531 and 1017 kHz. See the list please.

531 Algeria very strong

I heard a lot of other stations. All fqs were filled with stations, but I couldn’t ID all of them.

There were many Arabic speaking stations from North Africa that wasn’t ID.

Radio Sweden International had an extremely good signal on shortwave. To the afternoon tea on the balcony in the sun I could enjoy the latest news from home.
